To determine the relationship between sleep quality and job satisfaction in resident doctors of the Central Military Hospital in the period 2021.


Observational, descriptive, cross-sectional study. Non-probabilistic for convenience. Resident physicians of the Central Military Hospital were included in the 2021 period. The chi-square test was used to cross-match nominal variables. To determine the correlation between the nominal and quantitative variables, Pearson's correlation coefficient was used and p <0.05 was considered significant.


58.5% correspond to the male sex. The mean age corresponds to 29 ± 2 years. Regarding the characteristics of sleep, 45.3% affirm that they sleep at least 5 hours / day. The hours of sleep registered an average of 5.4 hours. An average of 78.8 ± 26.6 hours per week is recorded. There is a significant association between job satisfaction and sleep quality (p> 0.05) and Odds Ratio = 5.5.
